Even hearing the horror stories about a neighbor or friend who has had a nasty termite infestation is enough information to know that you never want to have that kind of issue in your own home. But with a majority of the US considered highly at risk areas for termite infestations, knowing prevention tips and what the best treatment is for eliminating termites is an absolute must. Termites are not the sort of pest you want to treat yourself. The stakes are too high when it comes to your home. Hiring a company that is experienced and passionate about eliminating every last termite from your property is the best way to make sure your home is not destroyed by these wood eating pests.
Termite treatment and prevention
When it comes to your home, the best treatment plan for termites goes hand and hand with prevention. You will want to set up a regular inspection and treatment appointment with a termite professional now before you actually see evidence of termites. This can seem like overkill when it comes to trying to prevent a pest you don’t even know if you have. But the threat of termites causing significant damage in your home is real and likely, and can easily be prevented with a routine inspection by a pro.
While many termite infestations can be treated with manually dispensed insecticides that can be put into the walls where the termite nest is located, other homes may be significantly infested or have termites in hard to treat areas of the home. In these cases, tent fumigation can be an excellent option that will eliminate every termite, egg, or any other kind of pest you may have in your home. You will need to vacate the premises for a few days, but once it is safe to return home, the substance used in the tent fumigation will be clear from the air and does not settle on your furniture or countertops, making it a safe option for your family and even your pets.
Wood repair services
After your home is treated for termites, a pest pro who goes the extra step will then inspect your home for damage that the termites left behind. While you may have hired a trusted termite exterminator to eliminate the termites, having the same company offer a reasonable quote to repair the damage found saves you the hassle of having to hire another company to do the repairs or have to complete the repairs yourself. Having this option available to you will help to reduce the stress and frustration that comes with finding a termite infestation in your home.
